There are plenty of ways to get around the British capital – you could take a taxi, ride a bus, hop on a bicycle, go on foot or even board a catamaran. But one of the best ways to get around London is on the Underground.
Also known as the Tube, the London Underground system covers a huge portion of the city and, while its map might look a bit complicated to someone who has never used the network before, it’s actually pretty easy to get around on these subterranean trains.
The key to travelling on the Tube is to have a plan before you board a train. If you know where you’re going, what lines you need to take and where you should be changing trains, you’ll be good to go. The good news is there are plenty of maps – on walls and in train carriages – for you to check as you travel and you can even pick up a free paper map from ticket offices.
Getting to the London Dungeon
The London Dungeon is one of the capital’s must-see signature attractions. It’s a walk-through experience that combines theatrical sets with sounds, scents, special effects and costumed actors to create a memorable experience that tells a story of the city’s dark past.
It’s been delighting audiences for nearly 40 years, and has attained something of an iconic status – but how do you get there?
Well, the London Dungeon is located at County Hall, a historic building on the south bank of the River Thames, near the London Eye. If you’re planning on taking the Tube, then there are two stations within easy walking distance.
- Waterloo – Waterloo station is located on the Jubilee, Northern, Bakerloo and Waterloo and City lines. It’s also a mainline rail station and is just 0.3 miles from the London Dungeon.
- Westminster – Westminster station is on the District, Circle and Jubilee lines. It’s 0.4 miles from the London Dungeon.
If you’re looking for a hotel near the London Dungeon, the Park Grand London Kensington is a great choice. This boutique hotel is just two minutes from Earl’s Court station on the District Line and if you’re planning to head to the London Dungeon, the whole trip should only take about half an hour.
